Jasmin Janeth's story

Sra. Jasmín Janeth is a member of the Communal Bank “Los Laureles II”, which is located in the District of Banda de Shilcayo, San Martín Province, Department of San Martín. She is 25 years old, in a common law marriage, and has 2 dependent children. Sra. Jasmín Janeth has a good time embroidering because she has always enjoyed making things by hand.

Her business continues to operate and she has a regular clientele who place their orders every month. She also sells to her friends, relatives, and neighbors. Her sales have been good and have resulted in profits every month. Because of her charismatic personality, many of her sales have resulted from word of mouth.

With her loan of 1000 soles, Sra. Jasmín Janeth will purchase handicraft materials such as thread, different colors of wool, and fabric for adorning edges. She is happy with what she has accomplished and that her business continues to do well. Sra. Jasmín Janeth thanks Manuela Ramos for helping her start her business and also for the support they give other women who want to develop as entrepreneurs.
